Welcome Back to the Grover Awards! Today's fun features our dedicated, ensnarked, intelligent, and oftentimes hilarious commentariat, who chipped in with long form comments to elucidate us all. We thank both the nominees and all of you who step over the Lurking Line(TM) and join in our ongoing discussion about all things Phillies (and a lot more besides).
As was the case last year, the Blog Lords, complemented as ever by its growing horde of masthead contributors, all led by Liz, have marked various posts and comments throughout 2013 with this Z-snapped seal of approval:
Compiled with some degree of rigor over the course of the year, I, your blog poet and social media cruise director, set about to group these 2013 nominees into the following categories, and arrange them thusly for you, the fans and readers, to vote upon:
- Last Tuesday! Best Original Blogplay: The posts that were exemplary in their virtuosity, and slow-clappingly outstanding in the overall field of blog excellence.
- Last Wednesday! Best Original Screenplay: The best posts that gave us a pictorial feast for our eyes, whether in still or animated form.
- Yesterday! Best Adaptation of an Original Post: The best posts that riffed on whatever might have been originally intended and moved it to 11, because you see, it's one louder.
Today! Best Responses (Long form): Best responses to another post, generally 25 words or more, and
Best Responses (Short form): The pithiest pith that ever pithed.
